Happy Holidays

Message from our Interim CEO, Sarah Collins


As we are heading towards the end of 2019, it’s good to look ahead and think about what the New Year may unveil.

I would like to start with a huge thank you to all of the staff at Southern Oregon Aspire. Thank you for all your wonderful contributions towards the success of our agency. Your dedication to the people we support is admirable and apparent it’s at the heart of everything we do. We sincerely would like to thank all our community partners, the many long-term and new partners, for their trust, their support and their excellent cooperation with us.

Of course, there is always a lot of work ahead and I do have a wish list for this upcoming year, which I would like to share with you:

I wish for a team that continues to embrace change. The road of transforming a company can be rocky, but I am confident that our team will be ready to embrace all the upcoming challenges and to adapt quickly.

All our staff love what they are doing and the people we support can feel that in every interaction. I wish that we continue to be challenged and fulfilled, striving for quality supports at its best. I wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful and restful festive season and all the best for the New Year 2020.

Sarah Collins
Interim CEO & Residential Director
